Why do people pretend?
What do they get?
Will they ever stop?
I feel helpless
Life go by
People taken for a ride
One they can never enjoy.
Some naive; betrayed,
I understand it all
But I can’t conclude
I’m just confused.
I don’t want to see them bruised
Every injustice they have suffered
The angels have recorded
So there’s no point in me seeing red.
Even those that pretend
Are not content
As they’re but ruining their own lives
By pretending all their life.
Their little own make-believe world
Where they’re playing their so-called roles
Without a care for their souls
This is not about those who pretend to be strong because they don’t want to appear weak, or those who smile to hide their sorrow, or those that pretend to be self sufficient because they don’t want to depend on others for anything. I love these people, because they inspire me, their never-say-die attitude. When faced with difficult situations, they silently pray to Allah Azza wa Jal to help them through without whining about it or being ungrateful.
On the contrary, this is about people who deceive the innocent with their behavior. They don’t care about feelings. To you they are a different person and behind your back a different person. I don’t know how to be around them. I know they have their own inner struggles. And that’s why although I can see through their act and it’s annoying, I don’t judge them. I avoid jumping to conclusions because sometimes you’re completely wrong and it just makes you regret it. Besides, it’s against the teachings of Islam.
Please remember me in your duas. Fi Amanillah.
